City of Norwich AC's Mitch Goose furthered his claims for a Great Britain vest by claiming silver in the Under-20 5,000m Championship and European Trial.

He was always up with the leader but over the final two laps fell a little of the pace to finish second in 14min 57.02sec, which was outside the European qualifying time.

Novice Steeplechaser Dani Nimmock ran for the first time in the U-20 3km event and picked up her first national championship medal, a silver, in a time of 11:13.18. Ashley Harrell, also experiencing his first national championship, finished seventh in the U-20 3km Steeplechase but managed to produce a personal best time of 9:41.31.

Despite windy conditions, Sam Coe moved the hammer out 58.20m for sixth place while Chris Baker, in the high jump, was placed ninth when fouling out at 1.89m.
